"We understand the challenges that some may have with this subject matter, however, it seems like a worthwhile effort to bring it more clearly to people's attention."
So every Wednesday, "we'll tackle the stereotypical attitudes frequently directed toward those without a place to hang their hats," the site promises. But since the info was just posted on April 1, we suspect the Cruisers are taking Denver for a ride. Keep reading for the alleged themes....
